Your immediate action is needed on a bill before the U.S. Senate that could end basic health insurance coverage you depend on -- birth control, cancer screenings, maternity care, and more.

Women in every state will lose benefits. It sounds like a bad joke, but it couldn't be more serious. S. 1955 would allow insurance plans to ignore important state laws that protect patients, directly affecting more than 90 million Americans. Chances are you're one of them.

It has taken decades to pass state laws that require insurance companies to cover birth control just like other medicines. This bill would trample those laws, but it doesn't stop there. Besides fair coverage for contraception, here are some of the other benefits that women could lose:
cancer screenings
mammograms
maternity care
the ability to go straight to your OB/GYN when you have a problem
the ability to stay with the same doctor throughout a pregnancy
infertility treatment
osteoporosis screenings

And it's not just women who will be affected -- the bill guts state protections for coverage for prostate cancer screenings, ambulatory surgery, emergency services, and more. To make matters worse, it will likely also increase the costs of health insurance for older and sicker people who need health insurance most.
